FIS Press Release 

A jump of 78 metres (112.4 p.) put her in the pole position for the race but Russian Stefaniya Nadymova was hot on her heels with a jump of 77.5 metres. A point total of 111.4 points only gave Geraghty-Moats a head start of four seconds and Nadymova the chance to truly pit her cross-country strength against the American.

Germany’s Jenny Nowak was also fully in the game after the jumping part. 77 metres and 111.2 points had her start just five seconds after the leader, making it a trio which could fight for the victory on almost equal footing. PCR winner Thea Minyan Bjørseth also showed 77 metres but with a weaker landing, she only accumulated 108.9 points and had to make up 14 seconds on the track.

Following 26, 29 and 34 seconds behind the leader were Austrian Lisa Hirner, and a Italian duo consisting of Daniela Dejori and Annika Sieff. Fast skier Anastasia Goncharova, who had a great jump during yesterday’s PCR could not follow up with the same level of jumping today and had to contend with a delay of one minute and eight seconds.

The cross-country race was another start – finish victory for Tara Geraghty-Moats but this time the gap to her pursuers was considerably shorter. Stefaniya Nadimova battled Jenny Nowak for the second place and again, the Russian prevailed but only in a photo finish this time. So in the end, the result was the same as in the individual event in Oberwiesenthal but with Nadymova and Nowak crossing the finish line only 21.9 / 22.1 seconds after Geraghty-Moats.

The fastest cross-country time of the day went to Anastasia Goncharova again. The Russian needed 13:01.0 to complete the 5 km and improved from position eleven to the final fourth rank, +36.9 after the winner. Lisa Hirner (AUT) and Ema Volavsek (SLO) were fifth and sixth.

In the overall standings, Geraghty-Moats leads with 200 points ahead of Nadymova (160) and Nowak (120).
